An assistant coach on Michigan's basketball team was involved in a scary accident on Tuesday after arriving home from San Antonio.

Saddi Washington and his family were involved in a single vehicle accident Tuesday afternoon shortly after landing at the airport.

According to a report from MLive, who received a statement from team spokesman Tom Wywrot, no one was injured in the accident:

"Everybody is fine and heading to the facility," he said. "We're thankful and blessed as it could have been worse."

The vehicle reportedly rolled over.

Police were called about 3 p.m. to a reported single-vehicle rollover crash with no injuries on westbound Ecorse Road, near Denton Road and the Willow Run Airport, Van Buren Township Police Deputy Director Jason Wright confirmed in an email.

Thankfully, Washington and his family were okay, and even sent a text to Brendan Quinn of the Athletic.

The accident comes just hours after Villanova defeated Michigan in the national title game.
